Missing Piece Group
Best-known for his previous production work on U2’s album Joshua Tree, Bruce Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball, and Bob Dylan’s Time Out Of Mind, 11-time Grammy Award winner Daniel Lanois is back with latest album Heavy Sun.
Lanois is a prolific solo recording and visual artist himself, and sings and plays guitar in addition to producing the album. Recorded at his studios in Los Angeles and Toronto, Heavy Sun fuses classic gospel and modern electronics to create a sound that’s both familiar yet unexpected.
As the first release under Lanois’ new Maker Series brand, Heavy Sun’s first two singles and videos,”(Under The) Heavy Sun” and “Power” are great first examples of his wide-ranging repertoire. Other key cuts on the album include “Every Naion,” “Way Down,” “Looking for a City,” and the opening cut, “Dance On,” where Johnny Shepherd shines.
